Twitter Plugin for Windows Live Writer Updated for OAUTH

Twitter Notify, a great plugin for Windows Live Writer, is working with Twitter again thanks to updated version!Ever since the oauth-calypse back in August, I’ve been really missing my this plugin for Windows Live Writer. WLW is, in my mind, the best way to manage and compose your blog posts regardless of the platform you are working on (WordPress, BlogEngine.Net, SubText, etc) however the Microsoft-built plugin that I relied upon on every post, called Twitter Notify, stopped working abruptly when Twitter dropped support for basic authentication.

It appears that on August 31 Microsoft quietly introduced an update to this plugin which has been downloaded close to 17,000 times that promises to take care of this problem. This will be our official first post using the new plugin so let’s see if this works!

If so, everyone within earshot who uses WLW should go grab this immediately! If you don’t use WLW, tell us why not in the comments section below!

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
